By the end of his first term two years from now... Biden may have released 3 or 4 million (maybe even 5 millionillegal immigrants [illegal aliens] into the United States. Some of them will apply for asylum... but the large majority won’t do any of these things. Under Biden, these millions will just be allowed to stay illegally.

Why? What is the administration thinking?

Many commentators imagine the administration’s weak-borders policies are about importing voters for the Democrats. It’s true that, even if Republican plans for progress among Hispanics bear fruit, most Hispanic voters are still likely to lean Democrat.

But they need to be citizens to vote. And there just aren’t very many non-citizens — let alone illegal immigrants — voting.

Nor are Biden’s illegal immigrants likely to get legalized any time soon...

Illegal immigrants also are counted in the Census for purposes of deciding how many congressmen — and how much federal money — each state gets. But that’s a pretty indirect and long-term issue...

The reason Biden’s immigration people, and the Democrats in Congress, are unwilling to enforce immigration law is because they think it’s wrong. They simply don’t believe that the American people have the right to keep anyone out. They see immigration limits of any kind as just another version of Jim Crow, a way of discriminating against foreigners who are just seeking a better life. And anyway, America is an illegitimate settler-colonial regime founded by phallocratic slaveholders and Indian-killers, so who are we to tell other people they can’t move here if they want?

The Department of Homeland Security has spelled this out in one of the memos explaining its anti-enforcement policies, which it justifies as a means of “advancing equity, civil rights, racial justice, and equal opportunity”...

Immigration enforcement is immoral, don’t you see?...

The litmus test of open borders has led the ACLU to turn away from the cause of free speech, the Sierra Club from environmental protection, Big Labor from protecting the American worker, and the black political establishment from promoting the interests of their ostensible constituents.
